Forum: GratefulDead Subject: TDIH - More Amazing Fall '72

Another smokin' show, which I believe deserves more attention than it gets! Amazing renditions of Tennessee Jed, China>Rider, PITB, Half-Step, Truckin'>The Other One(awesome transition w/ Phil & Bill leading the way), and Wharf Rat, among others. PITB and Truckin' > The Other One are the most compelling passages to me. Some more excellent contributions from Bobby too. You can skip the 3 min "Jam" with Grace Slick rambling like a drunken idiot. Other than that, this whole show is amazing.

One reviewer who was there reports how Jerry from the stage likened Grace's nonsense to a sore pimple on the face of the band's otherwise wonderful performance, once she was escorted off. That's freakin' fantastic! Reminded me of one of the books that came out subsequent to his death where someone who knew said words to the effect that 'you haven't been dropped till you've been dropped by Garcia.'
He always had a really wonderful respect for the audience, who did after all pay to attend. Not that Grace Slick had any concerns about that that night.
